Final performance given by the whole Pink Floyd. If you haven't seen it yet, or just need reminding, it is outstanding.

Video quality isn't perfect, but sound is spot on.

ADDITION: If you want classic, old Floyd stuff, immerse yourself in this Live At Pompeii masterpiece:

Check Rick on Echoes. Stunning.

Well played, Mr Hollow. I remember watching that performance live on tv at the time. Shame the camera doesn't show us more of Rick Wright, but you can hear him underpin the whole thing. Waters looks proud as punch and at the same time sort of humble to be there and Gilmour absolutely gives it everything he's got - like he just knows they won't be passing this way together again.

yes, thanks SDH
my eyes are moist yet once again. Truely am still
reelin in the news. Like having the wind knocked out
of ya.
In that Live 8 footage, notice how Gilmour jumps into
the "Home, home again" verse way too early during Breathe?
It sounds like the band was just gonna take off and then
had to SLAM on the breaks.

Richard Wright~ what a HUGE loss.

On Gilmours "On An Island", it sounds like David introduces
him as Recharged Wright. It makes it even sadder to know
that this man was not the same as in his coke-fueled days.
The fact that he was "coming back to life" (recharged),
embrassing the positive things in life makes it extremely
frustrating to me. And I am not alone in that.

Another aspect(and I dont want to sound self-centered)is
I was up to the Halloween show of my "Project: Area 91"
(chonological 1991 shows)
So it was somewhat sad, yet fitting that I could listen
to the 10-31-91 show and pay homage to Jed Kesey, Bill
Graham, and now Rick Wright. And a side note to that show:
Little Red Rooster ROCKS! Never been a big fan of the song,
but this version blew me away.

And for those of you who live under a rock,
THIS is the finest Pink Floyd sight ever:

broken record: Rest In Peace Mr. Wright

Thanks for the brain damage link. I'm downing a podcast from their 77 tour and 80.

Sad news about Richard. My best to his family, friends and fans.

NP Wineland.
I honestly forget who turned me on to that sight, but it WAS some from here (and you know who you are).
If you are into trance, ambient, ecstasy stuff, check out
podcast 112 (Im pretty sure). Go in about 18-20 minutes
into the cast. Pretty good stuff if you are into that
sort of shite.
It was Zepher and that sight that made me buy a 750 gig HD!
